Gallery Report - February 3, 2017

Remember, amazing creative things don't only happen on the weekends. Last Monday, Diners toured through Midway Craft House that left Eric Michener of Fishboy feeling excitement that reminded him of when he first started going to shows. That's a feeling any music lover can remember well. As a 16 year old, I was so obsessed with music that I couldn't go a weekend without seeing any shows. As an 18 year old, I went to my first show at Rubber Gloves and fell in love with a city that was the home I didn't know I was searching for. Anyway, here's where you can check out some local art. Take some time to talk to your favorite artists and lend support.
